ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Soulful songs for people with soul....

Most of the band has been around long enough to be influenced by everyone from Woody Guthrie and James Taylor to the Rolling Stones. And then there's the Beatles, Chuck Berry and Elvis Presley and the list goes on and on. These and other great artists of their youth remain a powerful influence. The amazing thing is what they take from these influences...lush harmonies, intricate arrangements and award winning songwriting.

Band leader Bill Mulroney’s singer songwriter career began in the 1970’s at coffee houses and garage parties, but it wasn’t until after a musical hiatus of 20 some years when seeing an open mic poster in a local bar that something clicked. Bill’s passion was reignited and almost immediately he began to realize a renewed passion to write, and to rock.

He has now formed the Second Wind Bandits, a seasoned group of musicians including songwriter Bill Mulroney on guitar and vocals; Gary Garvin on bass; John Donovan on lead guitar and keyboards; and Ron Goad on percussion.

This latest CD “A Gift Of Love” includes 11 tracks spanning Roots Rock, Pop/rock, Jazz and Blues genres. This album contains a storyline of a man finding himself, and sharing his his blessings. "Stockbridge Bound", the very first track, is about a very special and spiritual place that is in fact, a land of milk and honey...

Soulful songs for the soul is the best way to describe the songs on this cd. For anyone who has gone through,or is going through,the pain of the breakup of a long term relationship,this is an album you must hear...you'll find yourself listening to it over and over....it will soothe your pain...

Bill Mulroney was named Folk Artist of the Year 2006 by New Artist Radio.

The Washington City Paper writes about Bill’s Solo CD “In addition to captivating originals, Bill offered tasty Dylan and Beatles covers—not something many can pull off...” and Music Monthly, described Bill’s first album as “...courageous,” demonstrating a “love of music, of friends, of spouse, of children, of freedom, of country, of life itself.”



Bill's Songwriting Accolades:
• Billboard World Songwriting Contest
• NewSong Semi-Finalist
• Songwriter’s Association of Washington

THE 2006 WAMMIES!
Second Wind Bandits were nominated for 2006 Best Folk Contemporary Duo/Group by the Washington Area Music Association.
Hey, we're a rock band now but we LOVE the attention. Thank you DC for the recognition!

Bill Mulroney’s last CD...
"Second Wind" is "well-balanced, intimate, romantic and rocking
at the right moments. Highly recommended."
—Bridge Guitar Review

We remember a time long ago when rock music was a big tent in which powerful melodies and rhythms combined with equally powerful words about the human experience and the result was a meaningful synthesis that transcended mere entertainment. SWB is more than a band; we are a group on a mission. Our songs explore the journey of life as we have lived it...the lessons learned along the way and the joys made possible by living with integrity. We are here to take you away from superficial fluff rock and to give you something deeper for your own life’s journey, just as we intend to keep exploring and appreciating all that life has to offer each and every day.

Powerful And Inspiring Roots Rock CD
"A Gift of Love" by Second Wind Bandits is a roots rock album filled with inspiring and powerful songs. The arrangements are filled with great melodic layers and driving beats, while singer/songwriter Bill Mulroney delivers passionate lyrics with a distinctly superior singing ability. The production behind the album is top-notch. It is skillfully mixed and mastered with the vocals up front and well represented instrumentation behind. The Beatles influence shines through brightly on this CD. This is a professionally crafted group of songs ready for airplay. Highlights are the opener "Stockbridge Bound," setting the tone right from the start of the CD with a powerful arrangement and vocal performance to tell the tale of Moses. "Baby Let's Ride" features a more intimate arrangement highlighted by country based instruments and another captivating vocal performance. A dirty bass line coupled with vocals, opens "Hey Babe" to set up the burst into a powerful chorus. This album is a great collection of musical work. You will enjoy it if you long for solidly crafted folk rock with fantastic vocal performances.
